Physical activity helps seniors remain active and healthy. When seniors exercise, they can help maintain or improve mobility, improve mood, and also remain independent for longer. Active seniors enjoy the benefit of being able to remain active as they age. Our at home health care services promote and help to keep seniors active and healthy.
How to Tell When a Senior Needs In-Home Care
In-home care will assist a senior with everyday tasks around the home. These tasks, ones that often become difficult as we age, may include:
When our loved ones start to lose their independence, it’s often difficult for them to ask for help. Pride keeps a senior in potentially dangerous situations without the ability to care for themselves as they once could when they were younger.
A few signs that it may be time for at home health care are:
- Changes in mood which can include frustration and depression
- Lack of energy or change in behavior
- Spending long hours in bed or sitting on the couch
- Loss of interest in activities that seniors once enjoyed
Fall Protection and Safety
Seniors that start to lose mobility and strength are at a greater risk of falling. Falls can lead to broken bones or surgery. Our at home health team can assess homes to reduce the risks of falls and to provide a safe space for the senior in your life to walk. Fall protection may also include monitoring systems where seniors can call for help when they trip and fall.
In Home Care and Physical Exercise
Our caregivers want the best, most active lifestyle for seniors. The key to keeping seniors active is to find activities that seniors can confidently partake in without the risk of slipping, falling, or becoming injured.
Each customized plan we develop for in home care clients will look at the health and physical ability of the senior. We will encourage seniors to stay as active as possible. A few of the activities that seniors in our care enjoy are:
- Walks around the neighborhood
- Doing yard and housework
Staying active, even if it means taking a stroll around the neighborhood, is good for a senior’s body and mind.
